Te title and composition explore how toys can change as one grows up and discovers how to satisfy their carnal desires. Furthermore, the soft yet bold colors used by Sotoko capture the contrast between innocence and sensuality. Shipping Details Carefully rolled up in a hard plastic tube . About the Artist Miguel Angel Castrillo Fernandez is an artist based in Santa Pola, Spain creating oil paintings focusing on the nude human figure.
Under the stage name Sotoko, the human figure is the prominent focus and theme throughout Castrillo´s art practice. For Castrillo, nude art provides him a venue to illustrate the most basic and primitive instincts of humans. Furthermore, his oil paintings capture primal characteristics that still accompany our society even as we evolve.
More specifically, his practice finds inspiration from the Renaissance and the revival of Classical forms and styles. He embraces a naturalistic realism, yet illusionist painting techniques used in Renaissance artworks. Additionally, he is fond of Italian painter Sandro Botticelli´s work and portrayal of the nude. However contemporary artists such as Scottish painter Peter Howson inform his practice as well.
Currently, Castrillo´s work displays permanently at the San Joaquín y Santa Ana Museum in Valladolid, Spain. His works have exhibited in both solo and group exhibitions in galleries and museums in London, Portugal, and Spain. Most notably, Sotoko showed twice in the Salón Erótico in Barcelona in the 2017 and 2019.
Castrillo´s strives to continue creating large erotic paintings while incorporating new ideas. more »
